Benvenuti a Niceville, la città dove il male è nato molto prima degli uomini. niceville sarebbe una cittadina idilliaca... se non fosse per le ombre, i sussurri, le sparizioni. E tutte quelle morti misteriosa. Il detective della omicidi Nick Kavanaugh è un forestiero, che vive e lavora a Niceville per amore della moglie, Kate Walker, discendente di una delle più antiche famiglie della zona. Da tempo Nick è alle prese con eventi non solo criminosi, ma anche inspiegabili. Da un lato ci sono le conseguenze imprevedibili e sanguinose di una rapina in banca finita nel sangue. Dall'altro, c'è Rainey Teague. Che è solo un ragazzo... o forse no. Forse è abitato da un'energia oscura e implacabile. La stessa che permea ogni angolo di Niceville. Perché a Niceville nulla resta morto e sepolto a lungo. A Niceville ogni famiglia custodisce un segreto che mormora dai confini del nulla, affilando gli artigli nel buio...

Carsten Stroud's "The Homecoming" (Knopf 2013) is the second in the "Niceville" trilogy. It picks up where "Niceville" left off, with our hero Nick Kavanaugh, called in when a flock of crows brings down a private jet of Chinese nationals by mucking up their engines. Nick is already knee deep in a... Leggi tutto
I can't tell you how happy I was to see this, the followup to Niceville . I truly thought this was the end, but now I just found out there'll be a third novel. Fantastic. Anyway, I said most of what I wanted to say in my review of Niceville. As far as I'm concerned Niceville and this book are one,... Leggi tutto

The Homecoming by Carsten Stroud is the second novel in a series that started with Niceville two years ago. My initial review of Niceville was very positive with the regret that I felt Stroud had tried to do too much with the book. Was it a mystery? A crime novel? A ghost story? Or somehow with...
It's been a year since I read Niceville, and there's a bit of catching up to do in this sequel. Not only are the plots strands from the first book alive and well, but a bunch of new ones are introduced in the first twenty pages of The Homecoming. My feeble brain had trouble keeping track of who w... Leggi tutto
After being to put it mildly underwhelmed by the first book in Carsten Stroud's Niceville Trilogy i am sure many of you are asking "why read the second one?" Well i suppose it was a case of morbid facination as to if things have improved and for the most part things have. For a start the story ce... Leggi tutto
Since this is the 2nd book in a trilogy, the first thing you should wonder is "Do I need to have read this first book?" - You don't, necessarily, but I would recommend it. If you read Niceville and are wondering if you need to re-read it, you don't. The author does a good job of including enough...
This book was on my radar because it has supernatural elements, but it is more a thriller than fantasy. The main characters are law enforcement personnel, criminals and an extended family that is in the middle of it all- a bank robbery, stolen American intelligence, mysterious evidence, a teen wh...

Continuación directa del anterior. Mismo estilo que el primero aunque el final queda un poco más en el aire. Mezcla de thriller policial por un lado e historia sobrenatural por el otro. Como pasó en el origen de esta historia me gusta por los personajes estereotipados muchísimos son una mezcla de... Leggi tutto
